  1. CAMREAD-- A HIGH-SPEED OPTICAL RECOGNITION SYSTEM

    SBC: Ada Digital Systems, Inc            Topic: N/A

    AN IBM-AT-BASED MULTIFUNCTIONAL SYSTEM-CAMREAD-IS PLANNED. CAMREAD IS AN INEXPENSIVE, REAL-TIME IMAGE-PROCESSING SYSTEM WITH THE CAPABILITY OF HIGH-SPEED CHARACTER RECOGNITION TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM OF CONVERTING PRINTED DOCUMENTS INTO MACHINE-READABLE RECORDS. DIFFERENT FROM OTHER COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE EXPENSIVE MONOFUNCTIONAL READING MACHINES, THIS SYSTEM HAS MANY UNIQUE FEATURES. FIRST, IT IS A ...

  2. BREAKAWAY LUMINAIRE SUPPORT FOR MINI-CARS

    SBC: Adian Engineering Corp.            Topic: N/A

    DUE TO THE DOWNSIZING OF AUTOMOBILES ON U.S. HIGHWAYS, MINI-CARS HAVE BECOME A MAJOR PART OF THE AUTO POPULATION. THE LIGHT WEIGHT AND HIGH CRUSH RATE OF THESE VEHICLES CAN CAUSEHIGH VELOCITY CHANGE LEVELS WHEN IMPACTING MOST EXISTING BREAKAWAY LUMINAIRE SUPPORTS. THIS INCREASES THE PROBABILI-TY OF INJURY TO OCCUPANTSOF MINI-CARS WHEN IMPACTING LUMI- NAIRE SUPPORTS. CONCEPTS HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED WH ...

  4. ASSESSMENT OF MECHANICAL SHOCK SENSOR CAPABILITIES

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    THERE HAS BEEN LITTLE, IF ANY, DEVELOPMENT IN RECENT YEARS IN THE AREA OF MECHANICAL SHOCK (MS) SENSORS, ESPECIALLY SENSORS WITH HIGH FREQUENCY AND HIGH-G RESPONSE. IT IS PROPOSED THAT THROUGH THE USE OF LITERATURE SOURCES AN ASSESSMENT BE MADE OF THE STATE-OF-THE-ART IN MS SENSORS AND OF THE IMPROVABILITY OF THE MOST ADVANCED DEVICES TO EXTEND THEIR FREQUENCY AND DYNAMIC RANGE. IT IS ALSO PROPOSE ...

  5. REMOVAL OF SULFUR OXIDES AND NITROGEN OXIDES FROM FLUE GAS BY CATALYTIC CONVERSION USING REDUCED ZIRCONIA

    SBC: Advanced Ceramic Research            Topic: N/A

    EMISSION OF SULFUR OXIDES (SOX) AND NITROGEN OXIDES (NOX) IN FLUE GASES IS A MAJOR CAUSE OF AIR POLLUTION AND ACID RAIN. CURRENT TECHNOLOGIES FOR SOX REMOVAL ARE EXPENSIVE AND CUMBERSOME. SULFUR DIOXIDE IS CONVERTED TO SULFURIC ACID, WHICH IS VERY CORROSIVE AND DIFFICULT TO STORE AND TRANSPORT. REMOVAL OF NOX IS ACCOMPLISHED BY CATALYTIC CONVERSION USING PLATINUM CATALYSTS. PLATINUM CATALYSTS ARE ...

  6. VIEWCACHE: AN INCREMENTAL DATABASE ACCESS METHOD FOR DISTRIBUTED LIBRARY SYSTEMS

    SBC: Advanced Communications Tech            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO BUILD A MICRO-BASED VERSION OF NASA'S RECON CITATION SYSTEM. THIS WILL ENABLE NASA TO DECENTRALIZE THE RECON DATABASE AND THUS GREATLY ENHANCE ITS POWER. THE PRODUCT WILL EMPLOY OUR INNOVATIVE "VIEWCACHE" STORAGE APPROACH WHICH USES A REVOLUTIONARY DATABASE ACCESS METHOD FOR INCREMENTAL SEARCH IN A LIBRARY OF CITATIONS. THIS SYSTEM WILL BE DESIGNED AS AN ADD ON ENHANCEMENT OF THE DIS ...

  7. DEVELOPMENT OF A HIGHER-ORDER META MODEL FOR SYSTEMS DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: Advanced Systems Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    EACH PHASE OF THE DEVELOPMENT LIFE CYCLE IS IMPORTANT AND THE PRODUCTS OF EACH ARE ESSENTIAL FOR A SUCCESSFUL SYSTEM. HOWEVER, DEVELOPMENT TECHNIQUES AND TOOLS ARE PHASE-SPECIFIC AND DO NOT COMMUNICATE WITH ONE ANOTHER. WE BELIEVE THAT THIS IS THE CASE BECAUSE DEVELOPERS HAVE NOT YET DISCOVERED A UNIFYING CONCEPTUAL MODEL OF INFORMATION SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT CONSTRUCTS APPLICABLE TO THE WHOLE LIFE CY ...

  8. IMPROVED AEROSOL DISCRIMINATION METHODS FOR ACTIVE OPTICAL FUZING APPLICATIONS

    SBC: Advanced Technology & Research            Topic: N/A

    IT IS PROPOSED TO EXAMINE A VARIETY OF AEROSOL DISCRIMINATION TECHNIQUES ESPECIALLY THOSE CONCERNING RECENT WORK ON PULSE SHAPE AND ELECTRONIC SIGNAL PROCESSING TO OBTAIN IMPROVED TARGET DETECTION PERFORMANCE FOR AN ACTIVE OPTICAL FUZE IN AN AEROSOL ENVIRONMENT. BASED ON THIS STUDY A SYSTEM CONCEPT WILL BE DEVELOPED TO DEMONSTRATE THE IMPROVED AEROSOL PERFORMANCE THAT IS OBTAINABLE AND THAT RELIAB ...

  9. COMPACT HIGH POWER LASERS FOR MODERN DEFENSE APPLICATIONS

    SBC: Advec Corp.            Topic: N/A

    THE DEVELOPMENT OF COMPACT, HIGH ENERGY DENSITY, HIGH POWER (AND POTENTIALLY C.W.) LASER SYSTEMS CAPABLE OF PROPAGATING THROUGH BOTH AIR AND WATER COULD PAVE THE WAY FOR NEXT GENERATION TACTICAL NAVAL SYSTEMS. APPLICATIONS IN OTHER DEFENSE AREAS AS WELL AS A HOST OF COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS ARE ALSO POSSIBLE WITH THESE TYPES OF SYSTEMS. WE PROPOSE TO PROVIDE A DETAILED PLAN AND DESIGN OF SPECIFIC E ...
